To decrease reliance on corporate media, protestors are moving towards building their own open source tools. Hackathons have been organized in New York, Boston, DC and San Francisco. The projects are available on Github so different camps can download and run them locally.
The Occupy movement has drawn attention to how too many in the 1 percent get to play by their own rules while exploiting the 99 percent. But who's doing the most to damage our economy and democracy? You tell us.
Like participants in previous movements for justice, the Occupiers need to avoid the false choices between protest and organizing, community building and electoral involvement, surrealist theater and the grunt work of change.
People are internalizing the truth that they share more with this group, the 99 percent, than they have ever shared with another group of protestors. Now, people are standing up and actively making their presence known.
